Mixed Media Bottle

Sometimes an artist creates something that just speaks to their soul~This is how I feel about creating this particular piece...A Jeanne D'arc medal is the focal point of this piece.

As many of you know, I design for Shabby Cottage Studio, and
it was made using their amazing images.

Oh how I love French dress forms and I was able to
incorporate those into this design.


Here is the reverse side.



Thanks so much for visiting!

Hi Cindy!
Just had to stop by and wish you a Happy Mardi Gras! Hope you don't get soaked at the parades...we sat outside and ate crawfish and finished up just as the lightening started :0 I feel like a stuffed tick.
I love this little altered bottle - so many lovely layers :)
Hugs,

Hi again!
No, we didn't make it to New Orleans at all this year, but I guess it's OK since the weather decided to be a pain. :(
Maybe next year - hope you had a good time, weather and all. We are getting rain, rain, and more rain right now. Hopefully, it will be followed by tons of gorgeous Springtime blooms - fingers crossed.
Hugs,
Sabre'
